Can I have links within a video?


Is it accessible to provide links within a video, which take you to a new page and pause the video when activated?


As long as the links are correctly coded using an <a> tag or the aria-role="link" attribute, then you can have them nested in video. Also, be sure that all expected keyboard functionality for links is present.
